City Lodge Port Elizabeth Excellent Value for Money”

I have just returned from a three night stay at the City Lodge Port Elizabeth, whilst attending the SA Society of Aaesthesiologists annual congress. Everything was fantastic with real value for money. Location is really a five minute walk to the Boardwalk Hotel and Conference Centre. Rooms are clean, comfortable and well appointed. Service is very good. This is like a mini five star hotel without the five star prices. Only thing is the breakfast is expesive at R165 but the spread is very good. Still, there is only so much one can eat, and R165 is expensive, when you can get restaurant breakfasts across the road for less than half the price.

My friend thought he was having a heart attack and I immediately ran to reception to see if anyone had First Aid. The on duty manager Adrian was walking past and immediately started assisting us. With in 15mins the ambulance had arrived and starting doing their ecgs etc. All this time Adrian was in the room assisting us and keeping an eye on things. We found this to be extremely professional, so a huge heads up to Adrian for assisting us through the process and ensuring everything was ok with one of his guests.

Consider installing a lift for tgr top and bottom floors. In festives, provide more ice cubes. The ice machine ran out and could not keep up with the demand. Perhaps the bar should stock up more and provide guests on request. Provide a TV channel for animal lovers and gospel music.

Maintenance and renovation”

I have ten years experience with this facility and my first experience in still the same as nothing has changed. No need to take pictures as everything remain the same accept the change of staff. The location is so perfect but there are lot that needs to go. Firstly , the red maart on the floor and in rooms , it has become so awful that you need to open up your windows all the time as it reduces the lavel and quality of oxygen in the room. The place must be tiled Secondly ; upgrade is indeed needed in the whole facility and a new paint will do as the structure is still good. Lastly; they must stop advertising the gym facility as nothing in that room is functioning , the dumbels are like they been donated by a charity instead of them donating to a charity. Nothing in that room needs to be be there . Compliments to ; bloemfontein and Durban umhlanga city loadges. The bloemfontein city loaded is old compared to umhlanga but two years back they went through a massive reno.
